Helene Aspgren

Dogs are naturally active animals that need exercise to be healthy and happy. Exercise can also help reduce stress and anxiety in dogs and help prevent health problems such as obesity and joint problems. But how much exercise does your dog really need? This is a common question that many dog ​​owners ask and in this blog post we will answer that question as well as give tips on exercise for dogs.

The amount of exercise a dog needs varies depending on breed, age, health and personality. In general, most dogs need at least one walk per day of at least 30 minutes, but some breeds and individuals may need much more. For example, breeds such as Border Collies and German Shepherds need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation due to their high energy levels.

It is important to consider your dog's individual needs when planning exercise for them. A dog that is overweight or has health problems may not be able to handle as much exercise as a healthy and active dog. It is also important to start exercise slowly for young dogs and older dogs who may not be as energetic as adult dogs.
